Only 10 units of Honda Jazz have been recalled.
Replacement for the faulty part will be done at Honda’s dealerships in the country.
Honda is currently in the process of recalling its popular models over faulty front airbag inflators on a global level. The company’s Indian arm, Honda Cars India Ltd, has also issued a recall for previous-generation models of Jazz, Accord, Civic, City and CR-V. Around 5,088 units of the aforementioned models have been impacted by this issue, with Honda City and CR-V accounting for the larger chunk.
Out of the 5,088, around 2,099 units of Honda City manufactured from 2007 to 2013 have been recalled. While 2,577 units of Honda CR-V, manufactured from 2003-2008 and 2011 have been called back. Similarly, 350 units of Honda Accord manufactured in 2003 and 52 units of Civic produced from 2006 to 2008 have also been recalled. Honda Jazz is the least affected of all the five models with just 10 units, produced from 2009 to 2012 being recalled.
In another recall, issued earlier in 2019, around 3,699 units of Accord, manufactured from 2003 to 2006 were recalled by the company for faulty front airbag inflators which could deploy with an exorbitant internal pressure at the time of activation, leading to inflator case rupturing. This could have incurred injuries to the occupants, hence the recall was issued to fix it.
As for the current recall, the faulty front airbag inflators will be replaced at the company’s authorized dealerships in the country with immediate effect. Honda India will notify customers of the impacted vehicles, however, Honda owners can visit the company’s micro-site and check if their vehicle is impacted by putting the 17-character alpha-numeric Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Besides, owners can also visit a Honda dealership in their locality for the same.
